President's Block Party

Come show your Hawkeye pride and celebrate the end of On Iowa! and the start of your first semester at the President's Block Party. Enjoy great food and entertainment; mix and mingle with your fellow classmates, university administrators, and Herky; and kick off your first week of classes with fun entertainment, fantastic prizes, and new friends! 

Please help us make the Block Party a sustainable event by sorting compostable and recyclable materials. Thank You!
